Also of coarse make you you have reset the Photoshop preferences.
This is a Photoshop bug. There is nothing I can change in the program itself until CC 2023. I may need to put the batch in a separate panel from the Plugins menu and SPA would have 2 menu items, one for the PSD setup and one for the batch. That is a ton of work and I really don’t want the program set up that way either. So I’m trying to avoid that. Also, I can’t do it until CC 2023 updates anyway.
